Keeping Rodriguez’s Legacy Alive at DETROIT by DETROIT IV

This will be my second year participating in DETROIT by DETROIT, and I couldn’t be happier. Last year, I teamed up with my good friend Omar Aragones to cover Mayer Hawthorne. Omar and I decided to do something a bit different this year; we plan on covering Detroit artist Sixto Rodriguez.

Not only does the film center on Detroit local artist John Panich, but the film will also feature Joe Average from Of Mice And Musicians and Jimmy Doom of Almighty Lumberjacks Of Death. Plus, keep your eyes (and ears) peeled for choreographed dances from Tunde Olaniran and guitar from Dave Taylor of The Amino Acids. It’s a project that is filled to the brim with local Detroit talent.

"The Z"

Parking Structure With A Twist – Local Filmmakers To Make Documentary about “The Z”

Lately, “The Z” has captured all the buzz – a massive, ten-story, “Z”-shaped parking structure, retail center, and art gallery which recently opened its doors to the public last week. Personally, I believe the most impressive features of this structure are the paint-covered interior walls, showcasing the work of twenty-seven international artists who worked day and night to make this vision a reality. A team of local filmmakers – including Sean “Seabright” Jackson, Jon Braue, and Joe Talbot – had the opportunity to capture an amazing series of moments.
